Rehabilitation is the process to regain full function following injury and involves restoring strength, flexibility, endurance and power. Rehabilitation is as important as treatment following an injury but unfortunately is often overlooked. The aim of a rehabilitation program is to regain pre-injury levels in all aspects of physical fitness. Injury rehabilitation contains a range of techniques such as mobilisations, exercises, stretches and functional coaching. Correct injury rehabilitation also ensures the risk of future re-injury is minimised by targeting key risk factors such as:
Range of motion
Many of the rehab stretches and exercises do not use equipment and can be done as a Home Exercise Programme (HEP) and are tailored to fit around your lifestyle.
"Emma's knowledge of the human anatomy puts her in the top bracket of Sports Therapists. I have had a painful shoulder for many years and had put it down to wear and tear. Thanks to her experience and knowledge, Emma diagnosed that I was experiencing shoulder impingement, potentially from calcification deposits on one of the rotator cuff tendons.
After being referred to a surgeon, she was correct and following successful surgery I am now pain free and have full mobility in my shoulder.
